Re: The Towing thread

Here's what I hope is a dumb question: assuming I have a good proportional brake controller, will the trailer brakes be activated appropriately when using Hill Descent Control?
Thanks,

Re: The Towing thread

I think that's what will do Steve. Do you happen to have an ARB camera set up? I'm trying to figure out how to connect the S-video cable to the Jeep head unit monitor.

Re: The Towing thread

Thanks Steve. I had thought about getting another tab welded on, but what do you mean by "free". Just a dangling cable hanging near the towbar?

Re: WK2 Offroad

Don't worry Indydof, it looks like it is 21-012-15, which amongst other things, says it addresses the symptom "Less than desired engine braking during downhill descent"

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Diameter makes a difference if you don't adjust for the decrease in the measured distance travelled though!

Good point - no, I didn't do a factory reset. Now you mention it, I think I recall reading about that somewhere. It's not part of a normal upgrade process - but definitely worth a try. Thanks....
